This is a typical WWII propaganda cartoon. Walter Lantz's animation and Hank Ketcham's story made it very entertaining. They're pushing war bonds in this one, directly linking their purchase to defeat of the Japanese and postwar prosperity.
The other three Mr. Hook cartoons are also here at IA.
I downloaded the 84MB AVI file. Video and audio quality were fine.
